Also known as starfighters, this definition includes small, maneuverable starships designed for military combat. These light craft are designed to carry out attacks on sensitive installations and targets that required immense precision.
In fleet battle, starfighters work in concert with capital ships, harassing warships and striking once their shields have weakened or failed due to enemy capital ship-fire. Alone, fighters have little to no chance of penetrating the shields of capital ships. For this reason, starfighters are grouped in squadrons and are equipped with proton torpedoes and concussion missiles. These squadrons could take out a large capital ship with precision fire.
Although not directly related to the fighter technology, we are providing a fighter pilot slang glossary for completeness of information.
